    Cheese's poll showed High Elves and Tomb Kings/Vampire Counts to have the best magic. What makes their magic so good overall?

    I think for high elves it is the destruction and the vampires is the raising of units, but dont dicount the greenskins as brainbursta and foot of gork as very potent spellls. and shoulg NEVER be underestimated.

    High Elves because they have powerful skills (such as letting the mages choose their spells instead of random), and powerful items. They also have a lore of their own which can shut down the enemy magic easily.
    The undead really don't have that much good magic. Their spellcasters don't have extraordinary items or skills, it's just their lore that allows them to raise troops.

    No, that's for VC.

    Tomb kings can't have miscasts, only roll for powerlevel, have 4 spells each.

    The spells are really good:
    -a magic missile (not really good
    -a resurrection spell (you can do this on every unit in your army!&#33
    -a walk again spell
    -a shoot/fight again spell

    That's nothing to laugh at.

    High Elves have the best and cheapest magic items. Book of Hoeth anyone?

    The reason TK/VC are good at magic is they don&#39;t need to roll to cast. All you need to worry about is the enemy rolling higher than you do. Only problem is you can&#39;t get irresistable force.

    But all armies nearly can have a magic strong force. Slaan, Slaneesh has a great lore, Tzeentch has loads of power dice, Dwarves have high resistance and the anvil. You just have to choose targets appriately.

    Vc, can have miscasts, and have to roll for casting ARCHAON&#33;&#33;

    That&#39;s a really big difference with TK

    yeah, being a VC player i dont really know why TK have resurrection. TK are a lot more elite and really dont need it. i think its just for fluff reasons.

    If TK where without ressurrection they would be next to useless. Either that or they would take away a point or two from the skeletons.
    What&#39;s more elite about TK? I can only think of the Ushabti. VC have black knights after all.

    ushabti and tomb guard are elite.

    Vc&#39;s have grave guard and black knights, so thats a stupid answer.

    Khemri is totally made of skellies and such, and so i think they deserve resurrection more than vampires.

    Offcourse vampires have it too, but i think it&#39;s strange that khemri can&#39;t make new regiments.They ARE the skeleton army you know.

    No thanks, too expensive.

    TK cannot raise more units because the first undead was Nagash with his necromancy and he is VC, TK rely on bringing their old soldiers back from the tombs to fight again and if they fall priests can get them up again. TK magic isn&#39;t overly powerful, it is just relentless and hard to stop.

    VC on the other hand, use raw magic power and don&#39;t have armies they just animate bodies from wherever they find them no matter what the person was in real life. It is explained a bit in the army books.

    High Elves are good at magic because they can use any lore, they have good abilities available to them, they have good magic items for good prices, and their lore can stuff any opponents magic while still throwing out a couple of powerful spells. Plus they always get +1 to dispel rolls, they are made to be good at magic.
